Mississippi State signed six in-state commitments on Wednesday. One of them was a Pearl Pirate.
Johnquarise Patterson had 1061 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in the 2017 perfect season. J-Red and Callaway's Malik Heath are part of a loaded receiver group.
Patterson reflected on the chance to play in the SEC: "It means a lot. Like when I saw the paper, I just stopped for a moment and I thanked God. It's a blessing, a lot of people not able to get what we got today. I just want to make my mom proud because she's a single parent. My main goal is to make her proud."
